Dear Prayer Warrior,

I have been listening to a sermon series based on Habakkuk questioning  God about the many calamities surrounding the prophet.  At the end of his book we read: “yet I will rejoice in the LORD! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!  The Sovereign LORD is my strength!  He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights”.  (3:18-19 nlt)  As we struggle to figure out what the “new normal” will be and how we can proceed safely with our programs, we also are mindful that we can rejoice!

A few of the schools in our area are having in-classroom sessions.  Most students are attending classes over the internet.  And a few schools are offering a hybrid approach to learning.  Plans for winter activities are in a “holding pattern”.  As we plan for next spring and summer, we are thankful that some new options for outreach are being presented to us.  We ask for your prayers for wisdom as we contemplate what programs can be feasible in the new normal.

We rejoice with the donation of kitchen utensils for the planned kitchen in Lincoln Hall.  The utensils are located in Wyoming, MI.  We are asking for help in bringing them to Annville.  There are enough boxes to fill a van.  If you know of someone traveling to our area and can bring part (or all) of the boxes to us, please contact Tommy.  They are presently being stored in a garage and need to be moved before winter arrives

During fall, many churches have a mission festival.  We are willing to help through video conferencing  (zoom, face book live, etc. )  Your support is helping us to make a difference in our community. Thanks again for your prayers.  With the apostle Paul may we “ Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4 nlt).

Your Partner in Missions,

Jake Moss, Director of Development
